It’s Friday and it is the end of another very expensive week for Anfi. We ended last week with the news which came in after publication that the courts awarded over 213,000€ against Anfi del Mar for seven clients. This week has not been any better for Anfi Sales SL and Anfi Resorts SL, with even bigger awards being made by the courts along with all contracts being declared null and void.
On Monday 20 January, six sentences were issued against Anfi with over 174,885.56€ going back to clients. Once again contracts containing floating weeks, contracts of more than 50 years and the taking of deposits within the statutory cooling-off period being deemed illegal under Spanish law.
Wednesday saw another five sentences being issued by the courts against Anfi with over 235,440.75€ being awarded to these clients. The courts also declared all contracts null and void for contravening Spanish Law.
All eleven of these clients were represented by the very able legal team of Canarian Legal Alliance.
In total, this week alone has added a further 410,326.31€ to the debts that Anfi are now incurring due to these judgements, the question is how long can they actually sustain these huge amounts?
In further news, the specialized court enforcement and execution of sentence team consisting of Judith Diaz Pascual and Cristina Batista have made yet another client happy with their dedicated hard work.
The German client has now received 14,712.66€ into his bank account, this is the balance of his total claim which amounted to 50,737,59€. There is unfortunately still an outstanding amount to be paid to the client. This consists of legal interest and his legal costs, these will be subject to yet another enforcement action by the specialist team.
It must also be noted that this particular payout was made voluntarily by Anfi as a result of the huge legal pressure from the execution and enforcement team, so is very good news for clients of CLA.
To end this week Inside Timeshare issues a further warning to timeshare owners especially clients of Eze Group. More emails are being received from readers desperate to find out if the claims they have received in calls regarding a court case in Malága against Eze Group and Regency Shores SL are genuine.
By far the most prolific are those from Platinum Services and Administration SL, followed closely by 01C Leisure and Legal Solutions SL. both are claiming that cases have been filed against the companies in the Malága courts. As we know a case against Eze Group was held at Birmingham Crown Court in 2017, where Dominic O’Reilly and his daughter Stephanie O’Reilly pleaded guilty. They were sentenced in January 2019 with Dominic receiving a custodial sentence and Stephenie having hers suspended.
At this trial, no money was set aside by the courts for victims of Eze Group, but the courts did order an investigation under the Proceeds of Crime Act. This particular investigation is ongoing and is not likely to be concluded in the near future.
As for Regency Shores SL, Inside Timeshare has no information that any cases are filed or even being filed with the courts in Malága, in fact, any cases against this branch of the company must be heard in Tenerife which is where the company is registered and where the sales took place.
These are just two of the companies that have joined the bandwagon of “scam” operations preying on Eze Group clients who are desperate to get their money back. If you have had a call with the good news of a case from any of these or any other company then please do get in touch with Inside Timeshare, it is your information that is vital to help others.
